How about having mix and match blank buildings and greeblies sets? That way people with limited time or ability could be able to have customized buildings to their liking. Well, to an extent anyway.30/07/2016 at 17:20 #45666
Greeblies for buildings would be great, doors,windows,hatches,loading bays (big doors),vents,air con units/heaters etc…….hoardings,lean-to’s,roof top doors ………
Blank buildings-not a bad idea,I quite like the idea of customising them……as well as existing stuff and ‘packaging’ buildings from the junk box.

wooohoo, got a price on my power armour troopers!
They are about 3 or 4 times the bulk of the regular troopers.
So they will cost more…
A pack of 5 will be £2.00
NOT cheap but they are big bulky figures and you shouldn’t need more than a couple of packs?
I will get them on my site when I get back from holiday.16/08/2016 at 22:47 #4668317/08/2016 at 07:37 #46709
That’s great news, soon I’ll have some proper infantry to go along with your junker tanks 🙂
I think the price is fair, they are very substantial models after all!17/08/2016 at 11:17 #46724
Not a bad price at all…17/08/2016 at 11:28 #46725
yah, price is fair, as you said they are big beefy models.

6mm figures do vary a fair bit. You expect to pay a bit more for your models. Chunky and packed with detail, so good quality overall and these are no different. Nice models.
I think the price is really good, especially 3 packs for a fiver.20/08/2016 at 12:40 #4703821/08/2016 at 07:30 #47089
Ordered, now it’s just waiting impatiently for the mail 😉06/09/2016 at 11:26 #4813710/09/2016 at 14:55 #48411
Those are insanely cool all painted up…. now all I have to do is save up some $$$$ to get some and some of those hover tanks.19/09/2016 at 19:50 #4896120/09/2016 at 13:48 #4900826/09/2016 at 10:39 #4930330/09/2016 at 11:42 #4959230/09/2016 at 13:54 #49603

Yippy…….fingers crossed for the hex containers.03/11/2016 at 21:09 #51765
Yeah those hex containers always make me jealous when looking at Anjangangaengna.

So…. I have sent a sketch off to my sculptor for a test sculpt of my alien race.
I have always planned on introducing aliens, but wanted to avoid GW themed ones and dog/lizard man races.
Still bipedal, but bigger than human sized and a very different way of fighting.
Should have a green maybe in a month to show you.
Off to work out how to make KR 16 rules for them now…05/11/2016 at 14:48 #51890
OOh, I’d love to see you do some bug-eyed critters 🙂

Remember the old Hex2Go cargo containers that I discontinued as they tore through moulds at a rate of knots…
I have a plan to bring them back, wish me luck.
So the old models ripped up the moulds pretty quickly and made it uneconomical to carry on selling them.
I tried having them done in metal but they cost a bomb.
So I gave up for a while.
Then I thought about casting them in two parts, that would avoid any overhangs and make them much more mould friendly.
The prints arrived today and are bent.
When you put the two parts together they are not flush.
I have spoken with the printers and they are going to see if they can re-print them.
If not, or if they do and they are still bent I can make a few touches to correct them by hand but they wont be perfect.
You can see the gap in the model below which will need to be filled prior to mould making, now this is a small error but it is an error all the same.
Would you still be happy to buy them if they were ever so slightly not straight?11/11/2016 at 13:30 #52269
Parts like this often distort slightly as they dry, due to one side remaining more damp than the other. You could try:
– Applying gentle heat to both parts and then taping them together and leaving like this as they cool down. They should then stay flush with each other.
– Sand each joining face until they fit flush with each other. This can be tricky to achieve a good fit with thin wall sections.
Hope this helps?11/11/2016 at 13:34 #5227011/11/2016 at 17:01 #52275
It’s good that you made the refinery structures essentially scale-less. Those of us who game in pretty much every scale can get a lot of use out of those things, all the more so because they’ll suit not only sci-fi but also moderns, post-apoc, steampunk, pulp, spy-fi, etc.
As far as I can tell from the picture of the new hex container, I’d be content enough with it, although I may only want one or two containers in the first place. But doesn’t the slight curve prevent you making an “open-topped” mould, anyway? It’s a bit difficult to explain, but I hope you understand what I mean.11/11/2016 at 18:21 #52277
Thanks, I was going to add some stuff that would have made it clearly 6mm.
Kind of glad I didn’t now.
The bend will just mean some minor filling.
The bigger area (the bent bit) goes face down which leaves a gap as shown, this gap can just be filled with green stuff so the two surfaces are flush when cast.14/11/2016 at 13:39 #52379
I don’t think its too much of an issue. Are you bringing back the half size one too?19/11/2016 at 15:44 #5272419/11/2016 at 15:44 #5272521/11/2016 at 04:48 #52773
